Pride Time 

Pride Time is a half hour set aside for you to master academic concepts. There are two parts to Pride Time: intervention and enrichment. At the end of 2nd period you will get a Pride Time slip from your teacher. If the Pride Time slip has an “I” code on it , that is an invitation from your teacher to help you master a skill or concept. If you have multiple "I" codes, you will follow the priority chart below to determine which class to attend.

If you have no “I” codes, Ds, or Fs, then you are free to go to an enrichment class. Be sure to have more than one enrichment in mind because if your first choice is full, you will need to choose another enrichment to go to. Once you have chosen a Pride Time class, you will remain there for the rest of the period.

We want you in school everyday. The time you spend learning in the classroom prepares you for life. Utah law requires you attend school (Utah code 53-A-11-101). If you have to miss school, make sure your parent or guardian excuses the absence with our Attendance Office (801-412-2111). Utah law only allows 10 days of absences for the year.

    • Please make every effort to be on time and stay all day. 
    • Check-In at the Attendance Office AFTER 8:00 AM or if your parent is excusing your tardy.

    • For adults when checking students out:
      • You must be on the authorized list in Skyward.

      • Show your personal ID.
  • Students will not be able to check out during Pride Time (Mon-Wed 9:40-10:10 AM, Thurs. 9:25-9:55 AM)
  • WJMS is a closed campus, so leaving campus without parent/guardian permission is not allowed.

Make-Up Work and Vacation Leave:

  • When you are absent from school, you are responsible to arrange with your teachers time to make up the work you missed. 
  • If you are going on vacation, let the school know in writing three days before you leave.
  • Teachers will need to sign a vacation leave form, where they will indicate the work you will miss.
  • You may have up to ten days of vacation leave.
